Event Description:

Former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (D-GA), the current Green Party Presidential front-runner, will be in Houston on Tuesday, February 12 at 7:00 PM at the S.H.A.P.E. Center Administration Building, 3903 Almeda.
There is no admission charge; everyone is invited to this fundraiser, benefiting Cynthia McKinney's campaign and ballot access for the Green Party of Texas.
Ms. McKinney seeks $5,000 in small donations in 20 or more states to make sure she qualifies for matching funds, and she naturally wants to be on the ballot in Texas (one of the most difficult states in which to attain ballot access) as well as the 50 other state-like entities.
Come meet Cynthia and support true grass-roots democracy!
